A new US based directory of women philosophers has been set up.

Below is a description and invitation to join circulated by one of the organisers.

This is a crowd-sourced database searchable by 1) name, 2) school, 3) faculty position, 4) areas of specialization, 5) primary research interests, and 6) geographical location. It currently contains over 650 names of women philosophers working on faculties of higher education across the world. As it stands, the listing is far from comprehensive, and we are relying on the goodwill of members of the profession to keep the database up-to-date and as comprehensive as possible.

Women with a Ph.D. in philosophy holding a faculty position (e.g., post-doc, adjunct, tenure-track, tenured, etc.) should check if they have an entry in the database and send any additions or corrections under the ‘Submit’ tab. Please use that tab to add yourself if you are not currently listed. We invite anyone to submit a name, including names of women in philosophy outside of the U.S.

The database should be an invaluable resource for conference organizers, editors, hiring committees, and anyone interested in learning more about the work of women in the profession.   Please spread the word!
